Hey Pete

How about doing the Corsair with the tilt wing for slow landings?

I always fancied that but it would be far more practical with a ducted fan

Now there's a challenge... wink

Should not be too much of a problem.

I remember a shoulder wing trainer that did not have the wings strapped on properly,

At speed the wing lifted and dropped back on top of the tank hatch.

It carried on flying but could be slowed down too a very slow speed.

I have just finished refurbishing this mainly white trainer but I have not got a clue what it's name is---any suggestions? As you can see it is slightly larger than my Super Air but it is much lighter and could be a floater suitable for an A-test which I still have not attempted ?. Repairs included loosening up the gummed up engine, re-covering the fuselage and tail plane and repairs to the latter. I have also fitted new radio kit and fuel tank plus tubing .

I gather the plane has not flown for about 7 years and was originally owned by an Epsom Downs / Epsom club member who unfortunately died.

Nice job Mike!

You could always use the Super Air to take your A Certificate.

Here's my latest. Doesn't really compete with some of the earlier exotica in this thread but it flies very well indeed once the CG is sorted to ones liking.

Baron 1914 in spoof Russian WW1 colours, minus the cowling. The picture was taken at dusk just after I'd started the engine, an OS 40 Surpass, for the first time in years. I hope to maiden it on Sunday and will take some better pictures then. In France the Baron is as well-known as a Super 60 in England.

Some better pictures of the Baron taken yesterday at what I hoped would be the maiden flight of the model, but first the engine, an OS 40 FS Surpass, threw a prop, then it refused to run consistently. It was very cold yesterday with quite a breeze so I decided to carry out the investigations when the weather was a bit warmer.
